Assessment, Recording and Reporting
Students are regularly assessed in all subjects to ensure that work is appropriate to their needs, to check on progress made and to allow us to inform parents. Targets are set for all students as part of this process, and PBT time allows us to work with them to discuss and review progress and agree targets for improvement.
Every parent can expect the following communications within an academic year:
- Progress Tracking information will be sent home on a termly basis, one of which will be a full report
- An opportunity to meet your son/daughter's group tutor (Year 7 and 12)
- A meeting with subject teachers
Key Stage 3
A new assessment method was introduced in the Autumn Term of 2016-17 which was launched at a Parents' Information Evening in November. A copy of the presentation can be view by clicking the link below.
Examples of the new grade descriptors for Key Stage 3 were also introduced on the evening. Grade descriptors for all subjects can be found below in the Assessment Handbook 2016-17.
